Madrid: Arson of an electric car of the Car2Go company (Spain)

March 20th, 2020

On the night of February 24 to 25, we set fire to an electric car from the Car2Go company.

The new models of mobility and urbanism that are proposed to us by States and companies, in this case by way of “Carsharing” or “Smart Cities”, are part of a capitalist propaganda that seeks to whitewash the image of the hostile, devastating and inhuman capitalism of always. However, they are only an extension of the industrial disaster that perpetuates miserable conditions of existence that make its development and profit possible.
We do not want to reform capitalism, we want to destroy it. We don’t need any more reason to attack.

War on the State, capitalism and the daily annihilation of our lives.

For anarchy.

PDF: How to Sabotage the Game Farming Industry

March 20th, 2020

PDF: The Time is Now

This is a PDF explaining how to sabotage game farms. It needs to reach as many people as possible. Against all authority, speciesism and capitalism.

THE TIME IS NOW, BRING DOWN THE GAME FARM INDUSTRY

A step by step guide to sabotaging game farms and putting an end to this fucked up industry.

Game farming is abhorrent. Hunters will use the excuse of conservation as a justification for their murderous actions, but game farming cannot be sustained in any way. Breeding wild animals to be released with the sole purpose of killing them, modifying the countryside to suit the needs of the hunting community and killing all other wildlife in the process with the only aim of capitalising on animal exploitation. Game farming is, indeed, a multi million industry that can be toppled very easily using direct action.

As game farming is an incredibly lucrative business based on breeding and rearing wild animals, direct action focused on sabotaging the infrastructure and releasing the animals into the wild is the biggest and most impactful action anyone can do bring the business to their knees. I will repeat this to clarify: YOU CAN STOP THIS INDUSTRY BY WALKING IN THE COUNTRYSIDE.

This document will solely focus on how to liberate and sabotage game bird farms as a map has been made available with hundreds of entries throughout Europe where you can find your closest farms. That does not mean we do not encourage you to seek other farms, like deer, wild boar and even fox (yes, people are breeding foxes for hunting) and do exactly the same thing. You might need to modify some of the advice, but it will still be good for the most part.

Italy: Anna has been transferred from Lecce prison to Messina

March 20th, 2020

We learn that Anna (an anarchist imprisoned since September 6, 2016, for the Scripta Manent operation, sentenced on April 24, 2019, to 17 years in the first instance sentence of the trial) has been transferred from Lecce prison to Messina prison. The transfer does not seem to be due to disciplinary measures but to the need to find free cells in Lecce prison.

Anna reported that she is fine despite the somewhat troubled trip on her cell phone, but from first impressions the situation looks better than in Lecce, being in a cell with shower inside and kitchenette. They would have told her that also in this case it is a temporary situation.

In Messina there is an AS3 section (Alta Sorveglianza 3, “High Surveillance 3”), generally anarchists accused of crimes of terrorism or subversion of the democratic order are imprisoned in the AS2 circuit but currently there is no female AS2 section for imprisoned anarchists, so the comrades are placed in AS3 sections. The female AS2 section for anarchists, in L’Aquila prison (whose conditions were almost equivalent to detention under 41bis), against which a long hunger strike was carried out between May and June 2019, was substantially closed.

This is the address:

Anna Beniamino
C. C. di Messina “Gazzi”
via Consolare Valeria 2
98124 Messina

France: “The Worst Virus Ever… Authority…”

March 16th, 2020

About COVID-19, authoritarian delusions and the shitty world we live in…

The macabre death toll increases day by day, and in the imagination of each person takes place the sensation, at first vague then always a little stronger, of being more and more threatened by the Great Grim Reaper. For hundreds of millions of human beings, this imagining is certainly not new, that of death that can strike anyone, at any time. Just think of the damned of the earth sacrificed daily on the altar of power and profit: those who survive under State bombs, in the midst of endless wars over oil or mineral resources, those who coexist with invisible radioactivity caused by accidents or nuclear waste, those who cross the Sahel or the Mediterranean and are locked up in concentration camps for migrants, those who are reduced to pieces of flesh and bone by the misery and devastation caused by agro-industry and the extraction of raw materials…And even in the lands that we inhabit, in times not very long ago, we have known the terror of butcheries on an industrial scale, bombings, extermination camps… always created by the thirst for power and wealth of States and bosses, always faithfully set up by armies and police.

But no, today we are not talking about those desperate faces that we constantly try to keep away from our eyes and minds, nor about a history that is now past. Terror is beginning to spread in the cradle of the kingdom of commodities and social peace, and it is caused by a virus that can attack anyone – although of course, not everyone will have the same opportunities to cure themselves. And in a world where people are used to lying, where the use of figures and statistics are one of the main means of media manipulation, in a world where truth is constantly hidden, mutilated and transformed by the media, we can only try to put the pieces together, to formulate hypotheses, try to resist this mobilization of minds and ask the question: where are we going?

Spain: News concerning the anarchist comrade Lisa

March 16th, 2020

On March 10 / 2020, the prison supervisory magistrate decided to reduce Lisa’s freedom of movement as she was “enjoying” semi-liberty (“tercer grado”, i.e. out in the daytime, weekends and other permits) by applying the 100.2, a condition that refuses exits at weekends and during the week unless justified for reasons of work.

This decision is the result of the appeal filed by the prosecutor of the Audiencia Nacional [National Court] last November asking for a return to “segundo grado” (or no chance to get out of prison), appealing to the fact that the comrade had not denied her anticapitalist and anarchist ideology.
Lisa’s lawyer appealed.

Libertá per Lisa e per tuttx!
Fuoco alle carceri !

Andy Coles – Undercover Cop, Sexual Predator and Right Wing Goon (UK)

March 15th, 2020

Andy Coles is a right-wing politician who is active in the ruling Conservative Party in Peterborough, UK, who used to be an undercover cop. This despicable piece of shit targeted environmental, animal rights and pacifist groups during the early nineties. Coles was part of a unit called the National Public Order Intelligence Unit of the Special Demonstration Squad and wrote their operational manual. This unit is notorious for systematically targeting activist women in deceptive and controlling sexual relationships in cases going back decades. At the moment a huge whitewash ‘investigation’ has been taking place detailing the exploits of dozens of these scum.

Recently a grass-roots campaign started in Peterborough to draw more attention to what this disgusting cretin has done. Andy Coles is already running scared, shutting down his blog, locking down all his social media accounts and trying to intimidate and assault the activists that are reminding him what a creep he is. Even if we don’t agree with legalistic and social activist approaches using appeals to the state, we are in solidarity to all those targeted by the sexual abuse of these cops. We have to fight against the State, against its police, against all the politicians of the right and the left. Revenge.

From Sack Andy Coles:

Andy Coles Intimidates Victim, Assaults Campaigner

Disgraced former spycop Andy Coles took his abuse to a new level last week, tracking down the woman he abused while undercover to harass her and attack her supporter.

As a vulnerable 19 year old in the 1990s, ‘Jessica’ was groomed into a sexual relationship by Coles whilst he was an undercover officer of the Special Demonstration Squad. When his past was revealed two years ago he immediately resigned as Cambridgeshire’s Deputy Police & Crime Commissioner, yet he has stayed on as a Peterborough city councillor.

Lecce, Italy: ‘Interruptions…’ – Poster about Coronavirus and more

March 15th, 2020

INTERRUPTIONS …

There is nothing new about social life taking place at a distance. For a long time now people have been persuaded that the best way to communicate and relate is through the use of a device. Prostheses of the human being, the smartphone and its like, have transformed the way of being together, of being informed, learning, communicating, writing and reading.

The next step is the robotization of living, technique pervading every place, every aspect of daily life. An overcoming of nature and the natural in favour of artificial beings and places. Such a scenario needs no social life, it does not need relationships, feelings, thoughts, it only needs order, discipline, regulation, machines. Maybe Dominion is trying to take a step forward and use a health problem, the spread of a virus, to reach generalized regimentation at least, the rest will then take care of itself. Science fiction comes to mind, but States have centuries old instruments to draw on without having to resort to the unknown.

Mexico: Sí Sí Señora! Fuimos Muy Malas y Fuimos Todas! (Recuento de un día de guerra) – F.B.I

March 15th, 2020

+ Mexico City, Mexico: Brief Overview of the March 8th Day of Rage

El pasado 8M volvimos a salir y nos portamos muy mal!

Como habíamos anunciado estuvimos presentes en la lucha callejera con nuestra rabia antisistémica junto a un chingo de compañeras de distintos grupos de afinidad y colectivas anárquicas y muchísimas mujeres que se unieron a la revuelta de manera espontanea…

Volvimos a contagiar de furia a los sectores adormecidos del «movimiento feminista» y a los grupos «etapistas».

I. No Somos Una Ni Somos Cien, Somos Un Chingo…

Los medios de domesticación masiva (de «izquierda» y de «derecha») como siempre mienten junto a lxs cacalover del «nuevo» régimen cuando dicen que las manifestantes fuimos 80,000, cuando fuimos en realidad más de 300,000.

También mienten cuando dicen que las «violentas» fuimos mayormente rechazadas por las ciudadanistas y que solo eramos «un grupúsculo menor de cincuenta».

La verdad es diferente: a cada acción directa se oían los coros de «fuimos todas» y se contagiaban con nuestra rabia anárquica cada vez más mujeres que espontáneamente se unían a apoyarnos en los ataques contra los símbolos del capitalismo y el patriarcado. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Coronavirus, Agribusiness and the State of Emergency’ by Silvia Ribeiro

March 13th, 2020

Much is said about the Covid-19 coronavirus, and yet very little. There are fundamental aspects that remain in the shadows. I want to name some of these, different but complementary.

The first refers to the perverse mechanisms of capitalism to hide the true causes of the problem so as not to do anything about them, because it affects their interests, but it does deal with the apparent cure for the symptoms. Meanwhile, the State spends enormous public resources on prevention, containment and treatment measures, which do not act on the causes either, so this way of facing problems becomes a captive business for transnational companies, for example, with vaccines and medicines.

The dominant reference to viruses and bacteria is as if they were exclusively harmful organisms that must be eliminated. A war-like approach prevails, as in so many other aspects of capitalism’s relationship with nature. However, due to the ability of viruses to jump between species, viruses and bacteria are a fundamental part of the coevolution and adaptation of living beings, as well as their balance with the environment and their health, including humans.

Covid-19, which now makes global headlines, is a strain of the coronavirus family, which causes generally mild respiratory diseases but can be serious for a very small percentage of those affected due to their vulnerability. Other coronavirus strains caused Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), considered an epidemic in Asia in 2003 but since disappeared in 2004, and Middle East Acute Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), which has also virtually disappeared. Like Covid-19, they are viruses that can be present in animals and humans, and as with all viruses, affected organisms tend to develop resistance, which in turn causes the virus to mutate again.

Berlin, Deutschland: Soli-Demo – “Schulter an Schulter in Solidarität mit den politischen Gefangenen”

March 13th, 2020

PDF: Flyer – Berlin

Kundgebung am Sonntag, den 22. März 2020
um 15 Uhr auf dem Hermannplatz

Anlässlich des 18.März als „Tag der Pariser Commune“ und „Tag der politischen Gefangenen“ rufen wir zu Solidarität mit den politischen und revolutionären Gefangenen weltweit auf.

Viele von ihnen sind seit Jahrzehnten in Haft. Sie befinden sich in Knästen, weil sie gegen Ausbeutung, Unterdrückung, Besatzung und imperialistische Kriege einen organisierten Kampf führen. Aktivist*innen sind politischen Verfahren ausgesetzt und werden teilweise zu langjährigen Haftstrafen verurteilt, ins Exil oder zur Flucht getrieben, wo sie wiederum verfolgt, angeklagt und eingesperrt werden. Menschen, die in Europa und der BRD ankommen, werden mittels Anti-Terror-Gesetzen, in Deutschland beispielsweise nach §129b StGB, jahrelang eingesperrt. So befinden sich in der BRD dutzende Revolutionär*innen aus der Türkei und Kurdistan in Haft.

Italy: Letter from imprisoned anarchist comrade Marco Bisesti

March 13th, 2020

ABOUT A SENTENCE AND SOMETHING MORE

I don’t deny a certain monomania. I have often had to deal with repression. I have undergone it, faced it, badly tried to understand something of it. I wrote about it for years in magazines, if anything because it concerned me and other comrades personally. Ironically, I find myself doing the same thing now for some years, but as a prisoner and along with others in the same condition, concerning the investigation that led to my arrest and that of various other comrades, with five of us being sentenced. I’d happily do without being the centre of attention, but I want to keep all the comrades informed. I want it because a trial is the culmination of various experiences that it’s good to discuss again at times in order not to let them fall to the level of futile opinionism.

In the so called “Scripta Manent” trial all sorts of things were put together. In a year and a half of court hearings – not to mention the amount of documents submitted – personal biographies were obviously dealt with regarding the accused and not only – there were historical-cop digressions on anarchy, discussion of previous judicial proceedings against anarchists, armed practices – past and present – publishing and street experiences… “A sometimes inextricable tangle”, a judge opens in the premise of the sentence motivations report. It is already good news to know that anarchy is incomprehensible to women and men of law. But let’s see what they write at the end of the first grade trial. [Everything in inverted comas (“”) is taken from the sentence motivations report]. Read the rest of this entry »

Brazil: Doxxing action against Oliver Fontana by ‘Cells of Opposition to the System’ – EN/ES/PT

March 12th, 2020

To all

We take responsibility for a doxxing action against OLIVER FONTANA, a lawyer in São Paulo, Brazil. Data in the links below:

https://pastebin.com/VrNwMu4A

https://hastebin.com/abiwirobus.sql

https://www.pastefs.com/pid/182606

The reason why this individual was our target is because he practiced physical and psychological torture on his ex-wife and 4 minor children. The case was reported in 2014 on the ‘Fantastico’ program of the reactionary channel ‘Red Globo de Televisión de Brasil’. Link to the news:

http://g1.globo.com/fantastico/noticia/2014/10/brasileiro-e-americana-se-enfrentam-na-justica-pela-guarda-de-4-filhos.html

OLIVER FONTANA is a member of the multimillion-dollar Fontana family, owner of BRF Brasil Foods, one of the world’s largest companies in the mass murder of animals (it produces meat and meat products under the Sadia, Perdigão and Qualy brands). He hides behind the image of the “Buddhist pacifist” and has no punishment for buying the Brazilian judiciary with the fortune of his family. But our collective is not for sale, so we present this male asshole in tribute to the International Day of Struggle for Women on March 8.

And here, a warning to all machos, misogynists, LGBTQphobes, racists, xenophobes and fascists: From now on, any one of you will be the target of retaliation from our collectives if you do not stop your attacks against socially vulnerable groups.

These scum are encouraged to attack and kill by their “messiah”, the psychopath Jair Bolsonaro. The time has come to stop them. This time we did a doxxing attack. The next time could be otherwise. Especially since we have access to their residences. A visit from us would be tragic for them. Read the rest of this entry »

Corona Virus: An Epidemic of Stupidity & Authoritarianism

March 11th, 2020

COVID-19 – known as the coronavirus – emerged in the Chinese city of Wuhan. It’s flu-like symptoms enabled the quick spread of the virus within the city. It also allowed the spread of the disease beyond Wuhan despite the attempts of the Chinese government to curb it by resorting to drastic measures of arresting and detaining suspected carriers.

Now it has spread globally. As of March 5th, 2020, 97,893 people have been infected worldwide with 7100 cases being regarded as serious. 3353 people have died of whom approximately 3013 were in China and 340 in other countries. The most serious outbreaks outside China have been in northern Italy, Iran and South Korea. The rates in many countries may be under-reported because of health officials refusing to test people reporting flu symptoms, especially Japan. The virus has impacted an estimated 87 countries and territories. 53,786 people have recovered from the virus. (Statistics from various government health agencies as charted in this webpage) According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), it takes about five days from exposure before people manifest the symptoms of the coronavirus. Not surprisingly the elderly, very young children and those with respiratory problems are most at risk.

What is noteworthy about the coronavirus isn’t the virus itself. It has been the fear, misinformation and over the top reactions including panic buying that has occurred in many countries including here in New Zealand where there have been five confirmed cases of the coronavirus at the time of writing (1 News, 6th March 2020).
